Will I need fancy, expensive softwares in addition to this course?

No. While the course will continue to expand to bring in tutorials on more advanced softwares, all the ways in which LJ will teach you how to create GIFs are free and approachable. You will need a computer and a wifi connection. 

Will my GIFs definitely become searchable on Instagram and other platforms?

This is just one of the goals of GIF creator academy, however LJ can not Guarantee your acceptance by Giphy.  LJ will give you all the tips and tricks to set your GIFs and application up for the highest possible chance of approval. You will need a website and a domain email (you@yourwebsite.com) email to qualify.

Do you I need to be artistic?

You are artistic! But no. This isn't a course in drawing or art but GIFs are an art form. We will primarily work with video, fonts, and pre-made images to create engaging GIFs.

By the Way, I'm LJ!
